Tottenham Hotspur wants to bring in a striker that can either complement or eventually replace Harry Kane. Over the summer, the north London-based club had its name linked to various strikers this past summer.
One name that Spurs had their eye on is Dušan Vlahović; the Fiorentina forward will have his contract expiring in 2023, so the Italian club will be open to selling as they failed to secure a contract extension.
According to journalist Niccolo Ceccarini, manager Antonio Conte and Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici have identified him as the center forward of the future and the ideal heir to eventually take over for Kane, should the 28-year-old depart.
Tottenham could use the contract status to secure a deal for the 21-year-old this January window as it’s likely the last opportunity to grab a reasonable fee for the Serbia international.
In the summer, Vlahović will have one year on his contract lowering his value as some clubs would likely wait to grab him on a free transfer or offer half of what Fiorentina can get in a few weeks if they sell him.
Vlahović has made 99 appearances for Fiorentina and has scored 42 goals while registering six assists.
